The worst RTTS to date.

SDS

I hate to be that guy but I am passionate about this game, I've bought every single one since 2011. This one is the worst one yet for RTTS. No one asked DD to be linked with RTTS but you did it anyway, and it feels bad. A universal player? Really? Who came up with this idea man? It feels lame. Training feels meaningless in RTTS and now you're "FORCING" people to play the double role now? I wanted to be a catcher but I guess I have to pitch, from a role playing point of view can I please say how terrible that feels? RTTS just feels wrong, I hate it. I refunded the game yesterday and it sucks..

Good job on improving the mechanics of the game and on the fielding improvements. I hate to bash this game you guys are going from one of my favorite sports game to just becoming the next copy and paste from last year to the next like Madden and it's so sad to see. Thinking about skipping 22 even, if things keep trending the way they are. I don't understand why you try to fix things that don't need fixing rather than just improving. RTTS didn't need this complete overhaul.

SDS

Have you tried playing it far enough where you can tell them you don't want to be a 2-way player?

SDS

I like the idea of being able to use your RTTS player in DD but it sounds like they botched the execution. I've been using my player in DD so far and haven't actually entered RTTS but the fact that they force you to try the 2 way role is frustrating. Some people just want to pitch or hit in that mode, not both.

It's only for a few games from what I understand. I feel like there are much worse flaws in DD this year.

SDS

You can get out of having to play the two-way role. Once you get drafted by a team either randomly or one you pick. You will be asked about it . At this point you won't really be given a choice. You will play a couple games in the field and then you will pitch a game. After that game you will be asked if you want to continue as a dual player or if you just want to pitch or play n the field. I said play in the field Left Field Dodgers.

I m no longer in the Pitching Rotation but it still has starting pitcher has my secondary position which pisses me off. I did send a support ticket about that. yes I think the Universal player is idiotic. You should be able to create individual players for each road to the show series. There are many things wrong with this game.

SDS

In theory I think it's a cool idea to use your RTTS in DD. But they way they did it was extremely dumb. This stupid perk [censored] is dumb. I want the old system. You earn points, you spend points on the upgrades you want. Now what, you train once and week to try to earn "perk packs" smh. SDS is clueless.

I want a legit career mode. Meaning picking my agent, making contacts and money have meaning. Signing endorsement deals, having a social feed that is worth putting in the game. Nobody asked for some [censored] podcast that most people will just skip anyways. This is by far the worse game is in the series that I've played in 10 years.

SDS

They literally ask you from the beginning and then like once every two weeks if you want to be a one way or two way player. They never force you. Idk why ppl keep saying that unless they're lacking a few brain cells...

They do force you. I made it very clear that I didn't want to be a two-way player. Got told that I'm still going to have to try it. Had to bean 28 batters before I got pulled.

SDS

I posted this in another forum but I'm goin to put it here again my personal wishlist for road to the show

Here is my wishlist

Player Creation mainly for pitching

Start off in high-school or college or even both and play some games there. I can't be the only one who is tired of the topps showcase where we can't even increase our overall. Save that for after you are done with highscool and college.

Start off with higher stamina. It is literrally the stat that takes the longest to increase 65 stamina is far too low.

Choose how many pitches you start out with

Choose how fast you want your pitches to be. I don't think velocity needs to be a attribute anymore. Before you start you should be able to choose the velocity you want for each pitch. Obviously you and have a minimum and maximum velo for example a changeup you can choose from 76 mph to 88 mph.

Draft day. The draft screen is boring you should be able to go up put on jersey in front of people or watch from home.

Choose whether you what to be a two way player

Upgrades

Get rid of caps please it just slows down the progression of our player.

Choose multiple things to train and do it whenever you want to. The worst part about training you have three options. Fielding weights and bullpen or batting. The problem is you can only pick one. You should be able to do all three of them and choose what you want to increase not have it give you options and the thing you want to upgrade isn' there.

Another solution could be to hire personal trainers to help you upgrade. That way the money you make from your contract matters because you could sign for 15 years 30k a year and it would matter. The better the trainer the better your upgrades.

Off season training to keep your guy in shape as you start to regress.

Have the option to upgrade through training points or xp upgrades

Pitches

88 mph change ups. Why is it not an option for created players every other mlb player can have it but not created one's.

Give us the outliner quirk. This is the issie of sd studios being too focused on dd l. That quirk that lets you exceed the max velo would be awesome to have in rtts espically with how fast guys are throwing sinkers these days.

Records

Team records both seasonal and all tome franchise records. There are enough lists with franchise rankings on the mlb at bat app alone I don't think this would be hard. We have been given the same records. Imagine you break your team season record and they play it on the jumbo tron you surpassed x person for the franchise record in home runs or something.

Playoff records basically the same as the one above.

Achievements

No hit tracker I remember when the game used to tell you that you acheived your first no hitter or your first perfect game and now it doesn't. Every time somebody gets a no no or perfecto it should tracked on a list in a seperate page with the name date and amount of ks. We currently have something like that with team records but it only displays the number and not the person or date.

Keep achievements on the back of the players baseball card. What I mean by this is when you go to the player card imagine you flip it over it shows you your season numbers but also the achievements you achieved and how many times you've done it.

Awards

Change the image for the mvp award. It's not even how it's supposed to look like the same can be said about the lcs and world series mvp ward update them ot shouldn't have taken this long to change that ugly looking trophy.

Add the platinum glove award. It's been around for a while. Shouldn't be too hard to have in the game.

Award ceremony during the off season where they present you your award and you can give a speech.

Fix the cy young award glitch. I have seen it in previous games but come on it's still there. Every home game I'm presented with the cy young award. I can win mvp and the triple crown but they give me the stupid cy young every time.

Pitchers should be able to win the lcs and world series mvp awards I don't know why they aren't able to.

Player and fan interaction

Interview. Give my guy a voice and let me give an interview after the game. Base on the personality I chose earlier on in my player creation that influences how I answers.

Change the setting for the playoffs. Interview after every game on at the table and not my locker.

Let me hype up the crowd after a big play or a big out something.

If I leave a team for money or force my way out if I come back to play aginst them fans should boo me out the stadium. One of the biggest issues for rtts is the fans. They sound lifeless and don't really enhance the experience. The playoff atmosphere should be insane.

Contract and money

Sponsorships i don't need to say anything else

Make my agent matter more. Maybe the more money I spend from and contracts and I make from my sponsorship I can get a better agent who will be better at contract negotiations and get me better trades.

Contracts. No trade clauses, higher deals shorter length not more 31 mil per year cap and opt out options.

Management

Influence. Maybe you want to play with a certain player you should be able to go to management and tell them to try and trade for them or sign them in the off season.

Request for management to not let certain players go. You want to keep someone tell them to keep em on the team no matter the cost. Tell them you'll take a paycut of necessary.

Team future

Pitching teammates barely improve. Their stamina always goes down and never up that definitely needs to change.

Player regression happens too quickly. Guys like nolan, trout, story and yelich regress too quickly by the age of 30 or 31.

The guys who win rookie of the year fall of the face of the earth they need to be able to build their potential more.

Position changes. If they want to take a guy out of the cp role fine he must be doing bad. But in the game it's always randomly that it happens and they replace him with somebody worse. At least change the positions of players if the cpu is gonna moce them out of a role

Team jersey retirement. It would be cool if this was added into the game.

More hall of famers please. Guys like greinke, Verlander and scherzer will most likely be hall of famers. Not in this game for some reason they never make it which is weird because before they would make it. Be a little more lenient to qualifications on who will make. Have a list too because if a guys doesn't retire with a team there is no way to track it.

SDS

Love it, all of it. I would be thrilled to have any of these additions! I think there is a real possibility we could see at least a few of them by MLB The Show ‘35

SDS

This game is awful and I don't know if it's just me but can you not train anymore. This isn't even their mycareer game mode anymore this is just a way to get people to play DD I sewar people don't even use created players in DD that often. This game is absolutely terrible.

You train once a week. You start with everything at 30 I believe. And once a week you are given the option to add one skill point to any skill. I think it's capped at 50 though. So once you reach 50. Unless you find "perks" on the marketplace. You can't get that skill any higher. Unless I'm wrong. But this appears to be the way its designed. They literally turned this [censored] mode in a pay to win.

Such a trashy move by SDS.

SDS

Is anyone else having an issue where their progress just stopped counting for their ballplayer? Like PA, XBH, putouts, assists. Stopped counting them for both RTTS and DD. Seriously WTF, SDS. And sadly they are much more likely to spend time deleting comments of ppl calling them out for serious problems then to actually fix the effing problems. That's how it was last year anyways, we'll see I guess.

SDS

It has not let my player train in 2 months now and on top of that when it WAS letting me train say Id train weight lifting to increase my power i can hit 13 reps gold is at 10 and it will not even increase my power stat by 1 point so it says 1 time a week training on off days & durinf long stretches of games but when it doesnt even bately increase attributes by 1 point that would take 10 years in the monors to get to an 80 ovr & when its glitching or whatever it is doing to me & not letting me train at all i am stuck at 60 ovr for 2B and 62 as a SP AND it wont ket me switch my loadout back & forth it gives the option for example "next game SP. Switch liadout?" I will switch the loadout then the game starts & its the same loadout I had the only way it actually changes is if I go to clubhouse after every single gsme view calendar see where I am playing for the next game then go switch loadout on the ballplayer screen.....the mechanics feel funny as well the swings dont seem as smooth as 2020

SDS

....guess I am going to re download 2020 and play it still cus at least I can train and improve my player

SDS

We don't want the mode to be connected to DD. People in DD will never use the " Ballplayer " anyway. We can only make one player which can get stale very fast. The loadouts aren't very fun just let us progress our player as we play. What is so bad about gaining attributes by playing RTTS? Forced to be online to play is also a baffling decision so when the servers go off in 2 years the mode will be completely unplayable if you go to revisit the game or keep playing it. Also can't play when your servers go out or when our internet goes out. The progression system isn't very good when it works which it doesn't most of the time unfortunately. You are forced to play DD to progress your player currently because that is the only way the " programs " will track missions and stats. Also every time you go into loadouts it glitches out your gear and you have to switch everything back. Like it will give you just one batting glove put the foot guard back on forced sunglasses on always instead of when just fielding and much more including swing types when you have a built stance it can be very frustrating to have to fix it just because you went to the loadout screen to check " programs " progress. So please SDS just make RTTS like you used to for next years game. We want to be able to make multiple characters, not be connected to DD, and just gain attributes from playing not this " perk/architype " system.

this just seems like a crazy waste of time when you can just sim the pitching lol

Yeah, it was worth it though. AI is pretty good at dodging pitches. I thought if I'm going to be forced to have pitching stats I may as well make them one to remember.

SDS

RTTS is all I do and I used to be such a good hitter (with realistic numbers not video game numbers...that aint fun) in years past but now Idk what it is. I don't wanna blame the game, I guess my eyes are just going bad and I can't read the pitch or something. I've always played on all-star and hit around .300 but nowadays I can only hover around the .260 mark...still able to hit HRs though but not as many other hits. Pretty frustrating. Veteran level is too easy and too boring. Guess its just time I hang em up for good.
